Going to Seoul and not visiting the N Seoul Tower is like going to Paris and not visiting the Eiffel Tower... You can reach the tower by cable ride (north) or walking + bus (south). Prices are ok, within what is expected for a tourist attraction. Restaurants are a bit overpriced, but worth the visit considering the view.

Well first of I am a bit biased I love this place sometimes and sometimes it sucks. I would recommend Spring or early Summer. If you can find that perfect evening it's great!! Don't take the cable car waste of money and takes forever to stand in the line. Don't go up into the tower itself either that will cost... More

The unique thing about this tower, compared to other "towers" such as Eiffel Tower or Taipei 101 is that - this tower is located at the top of a hill - Namsan Hill. So, you can have pretty awesome view of the city, even by just hanging around the base of the tower. We walked from our hotel at Myeongdong... More

We went up with the cable car and up in the tower as well. It was a nice day so we saw all Seoul from the tower. I guess it would not be the same on a cloudy day, so prepare this attraction on a good sunny day. After the tower we enter the Alive Museum and this was what... More

Unlike some of the reviews here, we did not encounter any crowd at all. Maybe it was coz it was a freezing -5 deg that day. Or that a harsh wind was blowing. Or that it was 11am in the morning. Whatever the reason, there was hardly anyone waiting for the cable car or the Namsan elevator. However, the cable... More

You can actually walk to the base of the N Tower but most people wait on the line to take the cable car. The view from the park around the base of the tower is better than the view from the top of the tower (costs extra) so you might as well save yourself the time waiting on another line... More

Personally I like N Seoul Tower because it's a 'free' attraction provided you don't go up the tower. I've been here twice now and have never been up the tower because of the long queue and the admission fee (you can see the view yourself whether you take the cable car up or walk up). For the more adventurous, try... More

The observatory provided a bird's eye view of Seoul, regardless of the time of the day. A post office was available at the observatory for travellers to write and send postcards to friends and family. Love locks bridge was beautiful. Namsan cable car was a great experience. However, staff would encourage more people to get on the cable car despite... More

Nice to go at night for night view and very easy to go from myeongdong. Prefer to take bus from Myeongdong Subway exit No. 2 as it's cheaper. Remember to bring your love padlock if you are going couple or maybe you can get at the souvenir store located at N Seoul Tower.

This is a must-visit attraction. Queues are a bit long. When i went to the top and saw the view it was very foggy due to the humidity. There are events/performances near the tower. I saw a salmunori music performance which was good.
